Pat Kirwan of NFL.com ranked the pass rushers in groups of five, from "A" to "E" in his latest positional rankings. In a story from Football News Now, Kirwan ranked 25 of the league's pass rushers, including both 4-3 defensive ends, 3-4 DE's as well as outside linebackers.

Unfortunately, but not surprising to fans of the Baltimore Ravens, Kirwan continues to ignore the solid play of their key players, with Terrell Suggs being no different. Despite Suggs' 11 sacks in 2010 when he single-handedly pressured the opponent's quarterbacks, he is penalized for his lackluster numbers the prior year when he only tallied 4.5 sacks.

Suggs was placed in Kirwan's "E" grouping along with Tennessee end Jason Babin, Minnesota end Ray Edwards, St. Louis end James Hall and San Francisco end Justin Smith. These five, including T-Sizzle, were far behind the "A" group of Pittsburgh outside linebacker James Harrison Minnesota end Jared Allen, Indianapolis end Dwight Freeney, Chicago end Julius Peppers and Dallas outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware.
